Registration for the parish catechism program has begun.

Catechism Registration for Grades 2-9:  Online forms are available on the parish website at: http://stpiusxpei.com/ministries-2/catechetics/catechism-registration-grades-2-9/

The link for registering children entering Grade One is: http://stpiusxpei.com/ministries-2/catechetics/grade-one-catechism-registration/

Printed copies of the registration forms are also available in the Parish Office. Office hours are now Monday-Friday 9:00am-12 Noon and 1:00 – 3:00pm. 

In light of the covid-19 pandemic and associated restrictions we will not be able to offer catechism classes in the Church basement and schools for the foreseeable future, as a result our catechism program will be delivered via the home tutor option only. Parents will be provided with textbooks (also available via e-book via special request) and a schedule/outline for teaching each of the weekly 24 lessons to their children for Grades 2-8. 

Registration fees will be $10 per child/$20 per family. Online registration may be completed by placing the fee in a plain envelope, marked “Catechism” with your name, in the collection box at weekend masses or dropped off at the new mail slot to the left of the Parish office door. Cheques may be made payable to St. Pius X Parish. Call the Parish office at (902)894-8380 if you would like to pay the fee via e-transfer. 

The parish uses the “Be My Disciples” catechism program for Grades 2-8. Grade one children will use the children’s liturgy handouts with activities each weekend for their catechism program. 

The Confirmation preparation program for Grade 9`s will use the “Decision Point” video-based program and the RCL Benzinger “Confirmation” program.

Please contact Jerry at the Parish Office (902)894-8480 or catechism@stpiusxpei.com with any questions you may have.
